It goes up when the market is volatile. It's an ETN, not ETF. Is a little credit risk, but offers exposure to the first two months of the VIX futures contract. It's your class disaster insurance, but all insurance has a cost. During Covid, this was up 300% in mere weeks. Gives huge returns over a short time. It's hard for retail investors to grapple. VXX is down 40% YTD. Can be very risky. Use a very small portion of this in a portfolio and actively manage it. During huge volatility, you will need to sell and rebalance to return to a small holding.

Although you may think this is going to be a great hedge against volatility, unfortunately like so many commodity ETF’s, uses futures contracts. Futures’ contracts suffer from Contango and you end up selling cheap but buying dear. You can almost guarantee that 10 months out of 12 will lose money.
